Private Estate on Fiji’s Wakaya Island to be Auctioned in October
A private estate on the island of Wakaya, Fiji, will reportedly be auctioned off on Oct. 3, 2013. The auction will be conducted by Concierge Auctions.
The estate, Rai Ki Wai (View over the sea) is an estate perched atop the highest spot on the island, spreading over 46 acres. With more than 23,000 square feet of living space, the estate is the largest in the islands of Fiji. The estate has six suites on the whole, each with en-suite bathrooms, one additional bathroom and bedroom, gardens and decks and lanai. The main house of the estate is a Fijan-style 8500 square feet home that has a 5000 square feet master bedroom and a 4600 square feet living room alone. Interiors of the residence feature Balinese and Fijian decorations.
Outside, the residence has ample rolling greens, a lighted tennis court, a large infinity pool, a gym, a Boulez court and a volleyball arena too. The private estate also offers panoramic views of the sea. The home has a heli-pad and numerous private docks too.
According to the details provided by Concierge Auctions, if the home is intended to be used as a vacation venue, the residence can be offered for rent to the Wakaya Club and Resort, which will offer all its services to the tenants and allow the owners to earn an income while they are away.

The estate is being marketed by Hilton and Hyland. It was previously listed for $12 million. It is being auctioned without any reserves. Though the auction registration is not open yet, one can tour the property via prior personal appointment.
Wakaya itself is a privately owned island belonging to Fiji's Lomaiviti Archipelago. The island spans an area of eight square miles and five miles. The island was purchased by David Gilmour, a prominent businessman in 1973. He built infrastructure and brought in population to the island. Today, Wakaya is one of the top ten spots in the world for scuba diving. Apparently, actress Nicole Kidman rents the island for Christmas every year.
